Once I printed and cut out the template, this cute designer series paper from SU (Bella Birds) did most of the work for me. I sponged a little Pretty In Pink around the edges of the lamp, which really softened the look of the card.
This card will go into the mail to one of my aunts. She wears pink quite often (and it's a great color on her). And I remember, over the years, that many of her blouses have a lace trim on the collar. I know that this card will make her smile :)
This card is going into the Paper Pals Arts Challenge:
